Korean raw beef (Yukhoe) is a refreshing and sweet appetizer. Yukhoe is made from raw tenderloin that has been lightly marinated to become soft and tender. Flavored with soy and sesame, this dish is very delicate, with the egg yolk acting as a sauce that binds everything together. The balance of sweet and salty really bring out the beef’s natural flavors.
For dinner parties, you may serve the egg yolk on the side,this way, your guests will have the option of choosing it with the raw yolk or not.
"Tartare needs to use the best beef, not just in the quality of its provenance, but also the handling. Tartare is all about beef; only a few other ingredients to compliment it are used, but it is beef foremost." - Chef Him Uy de Baron
